This Movie Is About.
The Lighthouse is a 2019 film directed and produced by Robert Eggers, who co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Max Eggers. It was an international co-production of the United States and Canada, with the film being shot in black-and-white with a nearly square 1.19:1 aspect ratio. Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson star as two lighthouse keepers who begin to descend into madness when a storm strands them on the remote island where they are stationed.According to the director, although the final story bears little resemblance to Edgar Allan Poe's fragment "The Light-House", the film began as an attempt by his brother Max Eggers to create a contemporary take on the Poe story. When the project stalled, Robert offered to work with his brother, and the project evolved into a period thriller with the Poe elements largely removed. Dafoe and Pattinson were cast as the lead characters in February 2018. Principal photography began in April around the Canadian province of Nova Scotia and lasted a total of 34 days in Leif Erikson Park in Cape Forchu, and inside a hangar at Yarmouth Airport.The film had its world premiere at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival on May 19, 2019, and was theatrically released on October 18, by A24 in the United States. The film was praised for its technical aspects (notably the cinematography and production design), Eggers' screenplay and direction, and the performances of the leads. It was nominated for Best Cinematography at the 92nd Academy Awards and 73rd British Academy Film Awards.
